CD Projekt Red would like to release a next-gen version of The Witcher 3 for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S later this year. The highlights of the upgrade will include ray tracing support, faster loading times and prettier textures.

It looks like the developers will be using some fan mods that have appeared in the past few years. Including the project “The Witcher 3 HD Reworked” by modder Halk Hogan, which has received numerous updates in the past. In a message, the hobby developer announced that he had been contacted by CD Projekt Red regarding the next-gen version of The Witcher 3. Upon request from Kotaku a spokesman for the company said in a statement.

“In addition to our own development efforts for the next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 5 and PC, we are also in discussions with the creators of various mods for the 2015 game. At the moment, however, there is still no binding agreement with any of the parties involved. “

The team from Saber Interactive is mainly responsible for the development of the next-gen version, who already supported CD Projekt with the implementation for Nintendo Switch and the update for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. In addition to The Witcher 3 (buy now 25,99 € /29,99 € ) We are currently working on the next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077, which should also be released this year. Incidentally, both upgrades will be free for previous owners of the respective game.
